Everytime I've seen a gang member I can't help but think about how apelike they seem. And that is not a racial statement, any gang member that acts 'thuggish' makes me realize how primitive some members of society are. If you could even call them that.

I like apes.

I read some interview with 50 cent with him practically saying "I'm hardcore because I've been shot".

There's a guy who lives down the street from me who did two tours of vietnam as a bomb disposal expert. He comes across as a very level headed person, nice bloke. Never been shot because he probably figured out that standing in front of people with guns is bad for your health.

You gotta give it to those rap moguls .. they sure know how to market and advertise.

King Kong advertisers were hitting science journals, Narnia political Jesus blogs but rap promoters goes big time media news.

Also, that girl is hot. She looks like she really has the hair and skin products figured out there.

Lately when I see hot girls all I can think of how much time they've put into their hair and skin products. Maybe I'm getting old.

Well, we can all thank Corporate America and the idiots - both democrats and republicans - in the government for creating the whole idiotic "get rich or die tryin" philospophy by deifying money.

Money at all costs. That should be America's new motto. We should get rid of 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.' 50-cent and other tryhards like him are just figureheads of the victimization of our nation's poor people and disenfranchized minorities by the rich. It is farking ridiculous.

The problem is our entire country is obsessed with money. The 'at all costs' means everything else in life that goes in the toilet as a result of this deranged obsession.

In the news today I read that 20 percent of American women have not had a vacation in 6 years. 6 years! That is farking RIDICULOUS.

Our economists are obsessed with measuring GDP - economic activity and the creation of wealth - and they completely ignore the issue of whether or not people are actually happier. War, cancer, hurricanes - great for GDP because they increase economic activity! Hurray! Are people happier? No! Do we realize it? No! Is that the way corporate execs want it? Hell yeah!

Are we happier in the US than in other countries where everyone gets a month of paid vacation every year? Where health insurance and medical care are not just a luxury for the rich? Where you don't have to eat dogfood in your 70s? Of course not.

People in the USA are farking miserable, apart from a tiny elite that runs corporations that outsource our jobs overseas and keep driving the wedge in that makes poor people poorer.

'Get rich or die tryin' is exactly what these fat farking white pricks in corner offices on wallstreet and in the White House want poor America's philosophy to be. They want you to think that if you work an 80-hour week with 5 days of vacaction a year for long enough, you'll be rich one day too! Wake up, dumbass! YOU WILL NOT BE RICH! EVER!

safeinsane: Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the same thing happen with this movie? I seem to remember commercials for its VHS release that bragged, "Now watch from the safety of your own home."


you've gotta be kidding me.... white people crack me up

BTW the new Fiddy Cent movie have got an 18% on Rotten Tomatoes. At least it's 1% better than Doom.

they completely ignore the issue of whether or not people are actually happier.

Do you use ANOVA or pi^2 to measure happyness?

Double negative. Double negative. Double negative.

2005-11-11 04:23:37 AM  
Ahem. Double negative as a grammatical error only aplies when the intended meaning does not match the chosen phraseology, as in:

I ain't got nuthin = I do not have nothing = I have something.

But when "I ain't got nuthin" is taking to mean "I do not have anything," then and only then does the double negative become a grammatical error.

/That is all.

Nope. I read your post 3 times and.....

excuse me......

4 times and I still haven't got a clue what you're rabbiting on about.

"Now watch from the safety of your own home" ... was that really, RLY the tagline for the VHS release of Colors? If so, then I have to join mrFREEZE in hysterical laughter. Holy craps!

Your story is cool, because the when the guy was flying off his bike after being "shot" by the imaginary gun, it made me think of Easy Rider, which ends with the two protagonists suffering the same fate (although they were shot by a random redneck, not a cop). Anyway, it made me think "oooh, that's cool", because Dennis Hopper gets blown away like that in Easy Rider, and he directed Colors, and, um...the opening night of Colors is when you saw saw something that looked a lot like the final scene of Easy Rider.

Judging by the reviews, I would probably have popped a cap in someones ass if I had paid to see that film.

Heh....'Pop a cap in someones ass' just doesnt sound right with an English accent.

Yo' why you be frontin'?

Heh..funny........ Im so English......

Black people might have created a culture that finds pride in gang activity. I mean they do seem to do it a whole lot.
Half of you read nothing but gang activity and assumed they were all black. You have to wonder what kind of effect that has.

Is ebonics an officially recognized dialect, or can I still make fun of people who name themselves "fiddy sint?" I wouldn't want to offend anyone.

my boyfriend is a manager at a cinemark theatre and apparently the corporate office told all theatres getting this stupid movie weeks in advance to hire more sercurity gaurds and paramount will reemburse them in the future. I guess they were anticipating for people to start busting caps at this movie.
2005-11-11 05:18:07 AM  
Was it 50 cent himself? If not, then I'm not interested.

I don't blame these poor folks. Even the posters make me want to shoot someone. Although I can't decide if it's 50 (whose platinum skin grafts render him impervious to bullets) or myself.

2005-11-11 05:50:46 AM  
Serious question: does the movie create this attitude, or does the movie simply attract people with this attitude?

Look, I have zero use for rap culture, but come on. This "blame the media" mentality smacks of easy answers engineered to make the opinionated feel good about themselves, not an actual, functional observation.

50 Cent movie causes otherwise regular people to act like thugs


50 Cent movie attracts some thugs, and they act like they usually do

I wonder which is most likely?

Oh, come on...I'm sure someone will get shot with an arrow at the "Pride and Prejudice" premier. What's your point, submitter?

Clearly a numpty who hasn't read Pride and Prejudice.
